. >>> jetblue says flight attendant stephen slater no longer works there. slater, of course, captured the nation's attention last month when he went on a tirade and jumped down the plane's emergency chute. at that time, he was suspended, pending the outcome of an investigation. an airline memo told employees the whole incident did not take into account the harm that could be caused by emergency slides which are deployed with a potentially deadly amount of force. >>> and finally, this morning, the national buffalo wing festival is being held this weekend in the birthplace of this favorite food, buffalo, new york, of course. that's where the wing lovers showed up in droves and there he is, competitive eater, joey "the jaws" chestnut, competed against five-member teams to see who could eat the most wings in seven minutes. chestnut came in second. he ate just under three pounds. the event fittingly sponsored by pepto-bismol. and we should know again, one guy taking on five guys, finishes second. >> yeah. we remember joey just a few months ago. he's the famous hot dog eater over here at coney island.
